In December 2016, he was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of Squamous Cell Carcinoma, originally located in his lymph nodes. It was then found in the groin region, and over time has spread to his urethra, upper thigh and hip region. To watch Rich struggle physically is breaking my heart because of the good, happy soul I have always known him to be. As if his medical issues are not enough, he worries how he will support his family and himself since he is unable to work due to his medical condition. The bills are mounting up!
As a professional drummer, it is our sincere hope that Rich will again one day be able to do what he was born to do - bring his gift of music to the ears and souls of people again.
Please join us in helping support Rich with his fight against cancer. Every little bit counts and we would appreciate it greatly!
Thank you for your time and consideration. God Bless!
